Blessed be the fruit! “The Handmaid’s Tale” has been renewed for a fourth season at Hulu, ahead of the Elisabeth Moss-led dystopian drama’s Season 3 finale on Aug. 14.
Per Hulu, the third installment of Bruce Miller’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s iconic novel is driven by June’s resistance to the dystopian regime of Gilead and her struggle to strike back against overwhelming odds. Startling reunions, betrayals, and a journey to the terrifying heart of Gilead force all characters to take a stand, guided by one defiant prayer: “Blessed be the fight.”
Along with Moss, the series stars Joseph Fiennes, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Max Minghella, Madeline Brewer, O-T Fagbenle, Amanda Brugel and Bradley Whitford.
“The Handmaid’s Tale” is executive produced by Moss and Miller, along with Warren Littlefield, Daniel Wilson, Fran Sears, Ilene Chaiken, Eric Tuchman, John Weber, Sheila Hockin and Frank Siracusa.
The series hails from MGM Television.
“The Handmaid’s Tale’s” Season 4 renewal announcement was made by Hulu’s senior vice president of originals, Craig Erwich, during the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour Friday.
